NES Games Super Mario Bros 2, Kirby’s Adventure Coming to Nintendo Switch Online

News Writer: Raven

Nintendo has announced that Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby’s Adventures will be this month’s newest additions to the Nintendo Switch Online. Japanese players get an additional game from the announced update, as Famicom sumo title Tsuppari Oozumou will be made available to them as well when the updates drop on February 14.

The three titles join other classics in the NES Online service such as Super Mario Bros. 3, Metroid and Zelda II: the Adventure of Link.

Originally released for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) in 1993, Kirby’s Adventures is the second Kirby title to be released following Kirby’s Dream Land on the Game Boy. Kirby’s Adventures was the first in the series to feature Kirby’s copy ability, where he swallows enemies to gain their abilities. This ability, which gives him 20 different kinds of special skills, has become a permanent fixture in the series since then. The director of Kirby’s Adventures, Masahiro Sakurai, is also the creator and director of the Super Smash Bros. series.

Super Mario Bros 2, on the other hand, was released for the NES in 1993. Originally appearing in Japan as Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic, it was eventually released in the US under the title Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels. This was the first game that established key ability differences in Mario and Luigi, and where Princess Peach first became a playable character along with Toad.
